Tonights the big night durning the Christmas season, trimming the tree. My out-of-the-house siblings are spending the night, so we can get the tree today and decorate it tomorrow. These days are some of the best of the year.
What are your Christmas plans for this coming week? My grandparents and I had our traditional ornament shopping trip this past Tuesday. My Grandpa has gotten me an ornament since I was 4 years old. (And turned me into a ornament snob.) We have made of day of hunting down the perfect ornament together for about 5 years now.

How to make an amazing French Press:
You will need:
.French Press. Boiling Water. Fresh ground coffee (I use local Stumptown). Four Minute Timer.
Grind coffee beans to a coarse consistency.
I use about 8 tablespoons coarsely ground coffee per 16oz pot.
Place ground coffee in french press.
Pour boiling water over grounds all at once.
Brew for 4 minutes.
Enjoy the goodness.
